Self description

Male , 64

I left school at an early age with no qualifications, no references from my school head, I was told I would be a no hoper on the slide into being Mr Nobody with nothing but a pint and a packet of crisps.. But then, I found a job that empowered me so much that it turned my whole 'reason for being' around and I became interested in my own development and that of others, I turned a corner and found I could be everything I always wanted to be and more.. the rest as they say is history with loads of experience along the way. I didn't always get things right, who does, but I did learn from my mistakes and went on to achieve better things without making the same mistake in the same way. I now have my own successful businesses and enjoy the challenge of mentoring and being mentored.. we all need fresh perspectives on life or work, sometimes we can't see the new perspective, but we can be helped to find them to realise our own infinite potential.

Life experiences

Setting up developing a new or ongoing business

I have been in a business start up position several times now, I am in effect a serial business start up person, I love the excitement, the chase, the thinking it through, doing what people advise against because they don't understand the passion behind it. Its never easy and being in business is often a very lonely place to be, where do you go for support, everybody wants your money before offering advise, how do you know your going to get what you need, consultants often take your hard earned cash and then tell you what you already know. I want to offer my support and business experience to others who are in a position that I used to be in but have now have the benefit of experience behind me.

Reality life Counsellor

I help people from all walks of life; I am inspirational, a leader and people developer, I can offer advice and help build self-esteem where necessary.

Business relationship management

I am an avid networker, enjoy meeting new people and making new business connections. I have mentored and coached others into business relationships that they have found truly fulfilling - as a proactive believer in business relationship management I feel I have so much to offer others.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I have always been a mentor, a guy with an ear to listen, to suggest and turn positive from negative, it happened without me thinking about it really, at first very tentatively and informally and then structured and more purposefully. I have a long standing Mentee who has been through some personal reinvention a few times and I feel privileged to have been on the journey and seen the transformation over time, now a very successful business person it has been a joy - that is one reason I do this. I now have more time to give to others and relish the opportunity to provide help and support to more people. Like all Mentors here I want to make a difference to and for people, help them from making the bad mistakes, putting people on the right track, helping someone to feel good about themselves, building someone's confidence after it has been broken. Whether it's career related, personal or something that doesn't seem to fit any other hat then I'm here to help.... please feel free to ask.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
